(ISN) – BC Lacrosse Association’s Team BC Freshman Women’s Field Lacrosse team competed in their first

lacrosse tournament with a successful showing at the Adrenaline Seattle Tournament November 1 & 2

at the Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila, Washington.

The Team BC Freshman Women’s Field Lacrosse team consists of twenty grades 8 and 9 Women’s Field Lacrosse athletes from BC.

The Team BC Freshman team played three tournament games, winning all three outscoring their

opponents 29-9. In Game 1, Team BC played in their first game as a team, got over some early nerves

and defeated the Mustang Starz (Calgary, AB) 11-0. In the middle game, a much more confident

Team BC squad played strong at both ends of the field en route to a 10-2 over the Vand’al White team

(Seattle). In the final tournament game, Team BC started off slow and got behind 3-0 early in the

match, only to mount a huge comeback and defeat the Seattle Starz Select team 8-7.

On the second day of competitions, Team BC played two exhibition games versus the Puget Sound

Elite and Puget Sound Selects and lost both games by scores of 16-2 and 10-5 respectively.

Freshman Head Coach, Fred Jenner (Victoria), was impressed with his team’s performance over the

two days. “We could not have been happier for the girls. It was great how the athletes came together

and played as a team. What an awesome way to finish off the tournament for these girls.”

Team BC Women’s Field Lacrosse Program Head Coach, Dan Stroup (Port Coquitlam), took in the

tournament and knows these competitions will go a long way in Team BC’s overall development.

“These young ladies played well against some older competition. The time away together as a group is

a great first step in building this team.”

Team BC Field Lacrosse Co-ordinator, Reynold Comeault (Pitt Meadows), applauds the efforts of

Team BC’s newest team. “The goal of this inaugural season was to expose the players to their first

taste of high intensity Women’s Field Lacrosse with similar skilled players and Team BC coaching.

We have accomplished that to a great degree and have been very pleased with effort, enthusiasm and

development of each and every player.”

The Team BC Women’s Field Lacrosse high performance program consists of three Women’s Field

Lacrosse teams in the Freshman, Sophomore and Senior age categories.

The Team BC Freshman team continue to train for their next competition at the 2015 Sandstorm

Lacrosse Festival in Indio, California on January 17-18. The Team BC Sophomore and Senior teams

also prepare for competitions in Orlando, Florida, November 21-23 as well as January 17-18 in
